Naming the Dead: Only 10 of Scores Killed by US Drones in Pakistan Last Year Have Been Identified

Jack Serle, Bureau of Investigative Journalism

Just 10 of the scores killed by US drones in Pakistan last year have so far been identified, according to data collected by the Bureau’s Naming the Dead project.

The names for all 10 came from either terrorist propaganda or the US government, with officials from Pakistan’s government, military and intelligence services declining to provide any names of those killed by the CIA for the first time since strikes started in 2004.

The use of armed drones should be classified as a war crime and outlawed by international law.

I would think it would be hard to do when it is blown up. When Terrorist is armed and blows itself up, it is identified because of the family, or the terrorist group, right. So it would be hard to identify a body with out the fingerprints or teeth and that is only if you have ever had your fingerprints taken or been to the dentist. So... I don't understand the issue.
